Subtle Technologies Conference
"blurring the boundaries between art and science"
May 23 - May 25 2003
University of Toronto

2003 Programs Seeking Proposals :

General Symposium: Throughout the three days of presentations, we aim to 
cover a wide variety of subjects. In the past, topics addressed include  
quantum physics , quantum computing and other unconventional computing 
technologies, music, dance, consciousness research, holography, 
animation, genetics, sonic explorations, sensing systems and devices, 
social systems, complexity theory, and artificial intelligence.The 
programming of the general symposium is shaped by the submissions of 
each year and is meant to broaden the scope of disciplines or areas of 
research for those who attend. People who have attended the conference 
remark that although the individual topics at the conference are 
extremely interesting it is often the threads that are woven between the 
various presentations made by speakers from varied disciplines that make 
the conference a unique experience .  We strongly encourage interested 
applicants to submit proposals that are outside the topics mentioned 
above if they feel their proposal fits into the general mandate of the 
festival. Please visit the archives at: 
http://www.subtletechnologies.com to acquaint yourself with the history 
of our programming.

This year we will also be presenting a themed session during the 
conference."Ground? is a program exploring new technologies in 
architecture and urban planning. Topics may include but are not limited 
to, intelligent buildings, smart materials, alternative energy systems, 
surveillance, the effect of architecture on traffic flow, architecture 
and its affect on mood,organic architecture and nano-structures.

The festival is open to the public and presentations must be accessible 
to a non-specialized audience.
Each presentation is 40 minutes, followed by a ten minute question and 
answer period.
It is strongly recommended that parties interested in submitting a 
proposal visit our archives at http://www.subtletechnologies.com to get
